Praying for Our Leaders

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior. (1 Tim. 2:1-3)
I had a boss once who loved to make decisions. He did not make them rationally or emotionally or under God’s guidance—he just made them.

We are to pray for the authorities mentioned above so that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all godliness and holiness.

The leader you are praying for may not be a Christian. Pray for conviction of sin. Pray that he will hear the gospel and receive Christ. Pray for his decisions, that they will be good ones. And thank God! “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thess. 5:18).
